Ida "Millie" Bryant

June 25, 1931 — March 1, 2024

Port Neches

      In loving memory of Ida Mildred "Millie" Bryant, a remarkable soul who touched the hearts of many with her kindness and grace. Millie, born in Brookhaven, Mississippi on June 25, 1931, peacefully passed away on Friday, March 1, 2024, at Oak Grove Nursing Home in Groves, Texas.
 
       Millie was a woman of simple tastes and extraordinary talents. As a dedicated homemaker, she found joy in cooking delicious meals and baking treats for her loved ones. Her green thumb was evident in her love for flowers and the outdoors. Millie shared a passion for interior decorating with her first husband, Ralph Bryant, and together they explored the beauty of wildflowers in various destinations.
 
       In the hearts of those who knew her, Millie leaves a legacy of warmth and love. She is preceded in death by her parents, Myrtle (Barnett) Gunnell and Bill Gunnell; husband and love of her life, Ralph Bryant; as well as siblings, Mary Alice Nunnery, Peggy May, and Buddy Gunnell.
 
       Millie's memory will be cherished by her surviving family and friends. She is survived by her husband of thirteen years, Paul J. Duplantis of Port Neches, Texas. Her loving legacy continues through her son, Greg Bryant and wife Debbie of Canyon Lake, Texas; daughter, Belinda Catalina and husband Jack of Canyon Lake, Texas; cherished grandchildren, Chris Catalina and wife Shannon of Port Neches, Texas; Jill Caillier and husband Jesse of Groves, Texas; great-grandchildren, Jarret Caillier, Jaxson Caillier, and Kreed Catalina.
 
       A visitation to honor Millie's life will take place from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, March 6, 2024, at Melancon Levingston Funeral Home in Nederland. A Graveside Service will be held at 11:30 a.m., at Oak Bluff Memorial Park in Port Neches.

      Serving as pallbearers for Ms. Millie include Chris Catalina, Kreed Catalina, Jesse Caillier, Jaxson Caillier, Lee Bryant, and Frank Catalina. Honorary pallbearers include Jarett Caillier, Layla Habash, and Julian Habash.

      May we find comfort in the memories we shared with Millie as we come together to celebrate a life well-lived. Rest in peace dear Millie; you will forever remain in our hearts.
